Senator Hillary Condemns Arafat

Sunday, 24 February 2002 12:00 AM

Clinton, previously known as an outspoken supporter of the PLO agenda, said that she held Arafat responsible for the ongoing attacks and violence aimed at innocent Israelis.

"He has failed as a leader to rein in the forces of violence and terrorism," the former First Lady said, adding that his use of force to advance the PLO agenda would not be successful.

Senator Clinton also visited Israeli terror victims in Hadassah Hospital, and stopped at terrorist-massacre site Sbarro's Pizzeria in downtown Jerusalem.

"Americans can learn from the Israelis' example," she said, "who continue to go about their daily lives despite the threat of terrorism."

Ms. Clinton is in Israel as a guest of the Ministry of Tourism. During her husband Bill's tenure as President of the U.S., she came out in support of a Palestinian state even before an official American position had been taken.

The White House decided at the time to distance itself from her comments.

Also visiting Sbarro's today were members of the Japanese Makuya sect, who marched through Jerusalem and held prayers at the restaurant in memory of the terrorism victims.
